Russian spies among doctors

In April 2020, Jacopo Iacoboni published a story claiming, in relation to Russia's medical mission to Italy in the coronavirus crisis, that the "104-strong contingent of doctors and experts almost certainly included officers from Russia's GRU military intelligence agency." The expert quoted for this claim was Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, the British soldier spreading the UK government line on the in the Skripal-affair and the alleged Douma chemical incident.[3]

"We can assume that (the Russian team) will want to find out as much about Italian forces as possible and set up intelligence networks," de Bretton-Gordon told La Stampa.[4]
